Postdoctoral position summary/title: Research Associate in High Voltage Engineering

SF6 has a very high global warming potential and its applications in the energy sector is not yet prohibited. A key factor that is delaying SF6 replacement is the unknown on the long-term stability of new alternatives, which would require the development of appropriate PD condition monitoring system. This is an opportunity for a postdoctoral research associate (PDRA) to work on a project jointly funded through the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAA) and HVPD Ltd. Electric utilities are actively looking to replace SF6 with a more environmentally friendly alternative and contribute positively to the Net Zero target. However, we need to develop condition monitoring system tailored for new SF6 alternatives that can validate the long-term gas stability of these candidates. UoM will work closely with HVPD to develop new commercial applications and services tailored for SF6-free technology.
